In childbirth, there is a lot of room to personalize and custom your wishes if all goes well. I chose to take many different aspects you have choices in and try to explain them along with the pros and cons. I am trying to be as objective as possible, and most of my information is based on Marsden Wagner’s Creating Your Birth Plan.

Please understand I am doing my best to give over the information as it stands in scientific studies. It is up to you to choose how to do one thing or another based on personality (a person who needs things done instantly, or a long-term investment person), your situation (very long labor vs. very fast labor), your wishes of importance, and what you feel is worth it to speak up about vs. give in. The pros and cons will outweigh differently in different situations, and no one should take from these posts that the number on any one side is where the best bet is. Some of the pros/cons matter less than others, and you should take that into account when going with your instinct.

Feel free to comment if you have any thing you’d like to add or ask.
